LINE-X, manufacturer of high-performance protective coatings and automotive accessories, topped the Miscellaneous Auto Products and Services category for an 11th consecutive year as part of Entrepreneur Magazine’s 41st annual Franchise 500 rankings.
LINE-X’s growth, customer support, brand strength and low franchise fees helped secure a ranking of #327 on the magazine’s Franchise 500 list. The Franchise 500 program uses a proprietary formula and more than 150 individual data points to rank the top 500 franchises out of more than 1,100 applicants across all industries which include restaurants, gyms, hotels, cleaning services and more.
This is LINE-X’s 17th appearance on Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual Franchise 500 list, which is now in its 41st year of ranking franchises nationally. The rankings were the first of its kind when introduced and the key factors that go into the evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength and financial strength and stability.
In 2019, LINE-X welcomed 32 new franchises, and even more are on pace to open in 2020, further expanding LINE-X’s presence across North America.
“We are once again honored to be recognized as the top automotive services company by Entrepreneur magazine. LINE-X already has a reputation for some of the strongest bedliners in the business, and for the last 17 years, we have had the privilege of being honored as one of the best franchise networks in the nation,” said Dennis Weese, president of LINE-X. “Our franchises work very hard to provide the best service possible to their customers, and that has been reflected in our success as a company. We know our customers have a choice, and they continue to choose LINE-X because of the incredible service they receive from our stellar nationwide network franchise owners.”
